Florian Kainz (born 24 October 1992) is an Austrian professional footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.

Club career[edit]

In July 2014, after more than a decade with Sturm Graz, Graz native Kainz transferred to Rapid Wien for an undisclosed fee.[1] He signed for Rapid until summer 2017.[2]

In June 2016, Kainz joined Werder Bremen on a four-year contract, for a reported €3.5 million transfer fee.[3] On 18 March 2017, he scored his first goal for the club in a 3–0 win against Leipzig. Having been introduced as a substitute in the 88th minute he found the net two minutes later in a match that saw all three of Werder Bremen's Austrian players score in the club's highest win of the season.[4][5] Two matches later he assisted the last goal in Werder Bremen’s 5–2 win away to Freiburg via free kick, after being brought onto the pitch in the 76th minute.[6]

International career[edit]

Kainz made his debut for the senior Austria squad when he came on as a substitute in a friendly against Switzerland in November 2015.[7]
